Strategic Review of Food and
Nutrition Security in Lebanon
A qualitative review of food and nutrition security dimensions in Lebanon
On September 25 2015, Lebanon adopted Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which comprise of 17 development goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Among the goals is SDG2 which, through five targets, seeks to “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture”. While malnutrition is presently not a grave concern for the small Levantine nation, ensuring the dimensions of food and nutrition security (availability, access, utilization, and stability) are sound has, at times, proved difficult.
To assist Lebanon in the formation of adequate food and nutrition policies to address these challenges, Triangle was contracted by the World Food Programme and The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for West Asia to conduct a thorough review of availability, access, utilization, and stability issues related to food and nutrition security in the country. Based on the findings and recommendations of the report, Triangle also offered support to WFP in order to inform the agency’s longer term strategic planning and activities in Lebanon.
